Corey Nelson LB
The steal of this class, Nelson makes an immediate splash.
Hutchison, Kan.4 stars
Sooners are deep at end, but Grissom is a future star.
Assuming he qualifies, Haywood has enough talent to get on the field.
Columbia, Mo.4 stars
Depth issues at tight end are gone with him and Haywood.
Carlsbad, Calif.4 stars
Spring will be telling, but Stills is most polished WR in this class.
Pflugerville, Texas4 stars
Needs time to develop, but OU might need him ASAP on two-deep at tackle.
Rockwall, Texas4 stars
Could become Ben Habern’s primary backup at center.
Wichita, Kan.4 stars
Sky is the limit, but for now this is Landry Jones’ team.
Quality signee, but OU is loaded in the secondary.
Fort Worth3 stars
OU might struggle finding playing time for its returning linebackers.
Marshall, Texas3 stars
Same goes for Franklin; linebacker not
an immediate need.
Orange, Texas3 stars
Future slot man learns from Ryan Broyles.
Lancaster, Texas3 stars
Too many DBs for Hayes to play immediately.
Orange, Texas4 stars
Defensive backfield is deep, which puts Haynes a season away from contributing.
Cibolo, Texas3 stars
Coming off ACL surgery, McClain needs another year to regain full strength.
Solid looking prospect, but Ndulue not ready to contribute.
Flower Mound, Texas3 stars
Sooners want to avoid playing all of their incoming tackles as true freshmen.
San Antonio3 stars
DTs just don’t play early in Jackie Shipp’s system.
Receiving corps looks shored up. Powell can use the year to soak up the offense.
Cedar Hill, Texas3 stars
Big frame, but needs to spend the season reworking his body.
Irving, Texas3 stars
A future run-stuffer for the Sooner
Corinth, Texas4 stars
Possesses interesting upside, but needs time to develop some bulk.
Because of five talented DBs in the previous class, Wilson redshirts.
